What's up with all the violence?

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Lately there has been a rash of online news and videos of guys duking it out or getting stabbed on the golf course for slow play.

Just today I read some woman ran over a military vet with a golf cart and fractured his leg for playing music on the course.

 

It's getting scary out there guys, be careful and show some courtesy its just a game.

Society in general has went to hell lately. So much stupid but deadly crap going on all over the place. I guess it has filtered on down to the golf course. Anymore people in general think they can do what they want to no matter who it harms whether it is on the public roads or in this case the golf course. Yep a sad state of affairs

I had a dude try and fight me a few months ago for rolling a green from like 350-360 out. I couldn't believe it. Like really? Common man if I thought I could do that every time I should either get my head checked or be playing somewhere else.

And some people here at work think I have an anger management problem... :blink:

 

It's golf FFS, yes it's frustrating but fighting someone or hurting them because of a game.  :angry:

Last week, we were playing on Labor Day and the course was packed.  Play was slow.  The group behind us hit into us twice....the first time their ball hit my golf cart while I was sitting in it.  Their was no "Fore" or any other warning.  They did this twice, then while on another tee box we looked back while they drove the cart up next to the green.   That was it.  We politely reported their unsportmanlike activities to the Pro Shop, who did nothing, of course.

First off if you had done that to me and apologized I would have told you no apology needed great shot and would have probably bought you an adult beverage or soft drink of your choice. Probably would have asked you if you had ate a double dose of Wheaties that morning?

Personally I have only (recently) witnessed one episode of potential violence at the course. It was actually funny as it turned out. After we had played our round me and the other guys in my foursome were gathered around our carts next to the clubhouse putting stuff in our bags and settling our bets, taking, etc. All of a sudden some scrawny looking dude appeared and was talking loud and getting in one of my friends face. (we don't know why) Anyway, this punk was obviously drunk. What this fool didn't know is that two of my friends are COPS! LOL Needless to say one of my cop friends (he's about 6'3", fit and square jawed) turned to the dude and informed him right quick that he is a cop and to shut his trap and move on. Or else. It was funny to see the look on scrawny dudes face when he realized he was way out-matched by a big cop who's about to take him to the concrete or worse. All ended well. Especially for scrawny drunk dude.

I've been hit into plenty of times and I've always had the same reaction you just described. This guy was all pissed I didn't yell Fore after I hit it. Hell I didn't even know my ball was on the green till I drove up there and he had kicked it off the back of the green. The green is surrounded by rough so not many balls(if any) get there. It became a real spectacle after that.

The Pro ended up coming by and letting us play through. He told me it was a hell of a ball after that to.

 

Edit: Apparently I can't form a sentence properly.

I had a guy hit over us twice and then call the pro shop on us. My partner evidently told instead of asked to play through (I was busy fishing my ball out of the shadow of a tree.) The guy proceeded to hit one over our head on the fairway and then repeat it on the green. I was a teenager, but I was ready to throw down if I needed to after that.

A few months ago my partner must have been having a real rough couple of weeks as his demeanor changed. He went from 2 hour fast rounds to 4:30 rounds as a twosome and lost a bit of the fun in the process. The pinnacle was  a guy hitting close, but not really on top of us. Close enough to hear the thud, far enough it was 20-30 yards short. My partner flipped his lid, walked over to the guy's cart (brisk enough the guy thought my partner would fight him) and had a close conversation involving insults and accusations that I didn't exactly care to hear.

Meanwhile I stood and watched from 20 yards away as I didn't want to get involved, and felt my partner was completely in the wrong. The guy played through (credit to him that he didn't do anything about my partner's behavior or get into a fight with him.) That was the last round I played with my buddy since, as I also was dealing with some other baggage and didn't want my golf experience ruined. 

 

I'm pretty mellow on a course if it doesn't involve my shots or slow play. I've been hit by a friend's ball and shrugged it off as him being a moron and had numerous near misses from people forgetting to yell. Even frat boy fridays at the college course didn't really get my blood boiling to that extent. I just wonder if it's a carry over effect.

And, this pertains to some of the lazy rangers out there, please do your job right...your not there just to fill up water coolers all day and pick up lost balls, you are there to make sure groups are keeping pace. Just my 2 cents
